Unlängst habe ich ja jemanden die deutsche Version hoervon spielen sehen und ich kann nur sagen: Furchtbarst! "prüfe" statt "examine" und "Anzünder" statt "Feuerzeug" sind da noch die harmlosesten Beispiele. Von den Sprechern mal ganz zu schweigen. Aber wie immer bei solchen etwas wörtlichen Übersetzungen in Kombination mit Sprechern, die keinen geraden Satz hinkriegen, auf eine gewisse Art und Weise dann doch wieder amüsant.

Of course! ;) I just prefer more dialogue heavy puzzles, like getting past a guard or said gorilla. But I did like the general setting of the temple.

I also remember this fondly as a solid genre entry. What struck me as slightly weak was the fairly artificial puzzle design. Mostly, it is a little unimaginative and feels clumsy at times.

Now you see the violence inherent in the system!

Yes I did play the floppy version in the mid nineties when I was a teen, and I loved it. Still do!

I love the gorilla scene too, it's quite fun ;)

I played this a couple of years ago and there are two things I distinctly remember about it: The Gorilla, because it is a really cool scene, with an not so obvious, yet downright simple solution. And that the game took a dive in the last act in the temple, because the puzzles where very… artificial.

At the end of the day I quite enjoyed playing it. I really liked the setting and the ending (because it was so over the top). So I agree with you: It's a great game, a somewhat overlooked classic.

Did you play it back when it was new?
